If you need to do a Progress Report for a student that DOES NOT have a new IEP yet in SpEd Forms this year, we have created Google Templates you can use for the progress report. NOTE: If your school doesn’t use Google, email Sue Lewis (email@example.com) and request the Excel spreadsheet versions of the progress report templates.
Service Providers, not case managing the student, you will create a progress report for your goals only. Print 2 copies of your progress report for the case manager (and will give 1 copy that will be mailed to the parent/guardian and 1 copy for the file)
If you case manage the student: You will create a progress report for your goals only. Service providers will give you a progress report with their goals (2 copies).
- You will receive progress reports from service providers that include the service provider’s goals only.
- You’ll need to have 2 copies of each progress report – 1 to mail to the parent/guardian and 1 copy for the file.
- Please scan the progress reports to a .PDF file and upload the .PDF to the student’s History folder in SpEd Forms
To start a Progress Report (not in SpEd Forms): In your Google Chrome browser, click on the link following your school district. There is a template for students that you are reporting 5 or less goals and a different template if you report 6 or more goals.
A new tab will open – click the button to Make a Copy
New Progress Report spreadsheet is created
Rename the spreadsheet with the student’s initials, the text “Progress Report” and the progress report date. Example: AK Progress report 11-5-2020.
Boxes colored light gray are fields for you to complete. Enter the student information (rows 8-12) and then you can either type in the goal text and objectives or copy them and paste them into the proper rows. Be sure to check the box to indicate the progress on the goal and type in and date your progress report comment for the goal.
PASTING TIP: Be sure to Double-Click in the Progress Report Goal and Objective (gray highlighted boxes). Before you paste your text, make sure that you see your cursor blinking in the field. Here’s a video explaining this step.
If you need more than 9 objectives for a goal, copy an existing objective row, insert a blank row where you need a new objective and paste the copied objective in the new row. If you need less than 9 objectives for a goal, you can delete the rows for unused objectives.
If there are more goal boxes than you need, you can delete the unused rows.
When you’ve finished the progress report, print 2 copies. If you are a service provider, give both copies to the case manager.
NOTE: If your school doesn’t use Google, email Sue Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org) and request the Excel spreadsheet versions of the progress report templates.
